Greetings!  Just to observe that unless I'm mistaken, something in the
latest commits has accelerated maxima's make test by about 33%.(!)
Latest changelog:

  * Automatic readline initialization
  * Add watch file
  * Prevent circular error loops
  * Prevent automatic optimization added to CFLAGS by autoconf
  * Rework documentation installation in and outside of Debian
  * Support user deined predicates at an elementary level in the form
    '(satisfies foop) in gcl_predlib.lsp
  * Install binary gcd algorithm for ~10% performance increase
  * Rescale some default allocation parameters -- bignum allocation by
    relblocks by default, default growth parameters are 1 (min),
    0.1*MAXPAGE (max), 0.5 (increase), 0.3 (percent free), holepage is
  * Clean windows/sysdir.bat
  * Check for zero args in new gcd code

My bet is on the memory parameters, of course.  Would be nice if
someone could confirm/refute.

Take care,
